PIONEERS ROUT REBELS
CLARKSVILLE — Providence sent its seniors home with a 15-6 Senior Night win over South Central on Monday.
The Pioneers (14-3), who have won seven straight, host Austin at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday.

OWLS OUTLAST HORNETS
HENRYVILLE — Aided by some Henryville miscues, Seymour handed the host Hornets a 6-3 loss Monday afternoon.
Henryville scored single runs in the first, third and fifth frames and had seven hits, but the Hornets were plagued by five errors.
Cole Pirrmann absorbed the loss on the mound, while Kade Badger and Ian Stumpf had two hits apiece to lead Henryville at the plate.
"It was a disappointing loss for us," Hornets coach Jeff Schroeder said. "Pirrmann pitched well enough to win, but we surrendered four unearned runs, which is uncharacteristic of the way that we have played this year. We had opportunities to get runs across, but we didn’t get the job done at the plate. Overall, we left nine runners on base."
